Perhaps I'm off base in seeing this connection to the discussion, but there
are many instances where a "shell" document includes other elements pulled
and constructed by the server based on browser/platform/language specifics,
and therefore having additional language information within the "shell"
document would be very useful.

Could that be what Sampo is working towards?
